    Hi guys, slow coach here, she is finally done except for the aerial (waiting for one of the cat's whiskers to fall out:p, she sheds them like a christmas tree sheds needles:mrgreen: and i have used many before on 1/35th pla***c model tanks as whip aerials as they look great and last for ages)

    Great build Mick:thumb: if my cat gets another model I will send you all of his whiskers. My interceptor build has turned into a string of disasters starting with the metallic card I tied to use which was way to thick and ending with a complete shambles of putting on the side sponson cheek bit thingys.However it is such a great model that I will be having another go as soon as I have mutilated the Seaview:mrgreen:.I'm glad you and Pete are showing Gary how well they can be built I fear he would be flung into a fit of despair if he was counting on my builds.So whats next Mick?:wave:

    Hi Phil, ain't cats great, just turned around to find my old tom cat batting the mobile around the coffee table:curse:, About 99.99% of all my build attempts end up in the bin, I have built more of Gremir's fantastic destroyer hulls than the navy had throughout the war:oops:, not one of them has made it much farther than thatwall1. I've already started cutting on my next model, but it won't be of any interest to you at all:p

    Oh that old thing..The tr no no t2s no wait a minute I know this ermm the BAC TSR2 my build was used in a pretty accurate historical re-enactment with the cat playing the part of the Labour Governmentwall1.I look forward to seeing her complete.I get very limited time to work on models and even less where I can give my full attention so I tend to just move on to a new one when I muck up and hope to get back to the ruined one.This is definitely a get back to model in fact I have it printed ready so with your's as inspiration I could be back to it sooner than I thought.:thumb:

    Nice photo of a beautiful bird Phil. It's an absolute crime what happened to this design, if it had gone into production, it might still be flying today and i would get to powder coat parts for it:mrgreen:, but i suppose i will have to make do with Sea Kings, Nimrods, Lynx, Apache and Airbus amongst others. Next time Pete flies to Dubai:cool:, he might want to consider there is a good chance I've had my hands on some of the parts of his plane:p. One of the stranger things i coat is the steering wheel for a car

    It's a little known fact that the Suzuki GS750 was a direct descendant of the TSR2 project,I could let you powder coat the frame of mine I suppose,if it would make you feel better,just to help out:mrgreen:...NO oh well worth a try:twisted:.One of the Thrust series of cars isn't it? interesting.

    Brilliant Mick, and well worth the wait :thumb: and looking forward to the TSR2 to roll out on this brilliant thread :mrgreen: Also... the use of a cats whisker for an ariel :thumb: our cat better watch out and the dog for the larger scales sign1. The Seaview is going well ! I've up-scaled her X2 and i am adding details here and there - She will surface here when i'm sure that there's nothing else i can do with her! announce1 So be patient :mrgreen:
    After many hours of T-Cutting the car my arms are falling off :violin1: but made plenty of use of the nice weather :mrgreen: You could actually think it was a SUMMERS day today... oh yeh, i forgot... it is bounce7

    Bloody Brilliant Gary !

    Gary that is Absolutely BLOODY BRILLIANT :mrgreen: i think i can say that you are one in a million for sure :inw:eek:h high prince of papernesseness let thoust turn yon imagery into paper form so that wee meer papercutters may cut and snip and fold and glue and make forth a model of thoust chosen image... oh heck :mrgreen:
    The Seaview is coming along nicely adding a few bits to her here and there :twisted:. Had no chance to do a wip for the build :cry:, but all being well she should appear here very soon - if, like Phil says "there's anyone left" :cry:
